Well, if it’s Tuesday then it’s time for John to concoct another lie to cover his identity theft. Brian wants to know why Owen was calling him “John” when clearly he’s Colin Fishwick. John should also explain why people have a habit of bursting into his house and intimidating him.
So John, who’s getting good at this lying thing, actually comes up with a lie that is fairly resembles the truth: he is Colin Fishwick but after seeing a murder, he assumed the identity of “John Stape” (his middle and mother’s maiden name, respectively) and forever lives in fear one “Mr. Big”.
When Fizz comes home he hurriedly explains to her what he told Brian and, of course, she’s furious and not even a documentary about cows and the promise of sweet n’ sour chicken can calm her down.
Brian agrees to keep his secret and John thinks that’s the last he’ll see of him but on his way home, he runs into Julie Carp who has spilled her groceries. They bond over a shared love of Neil Diamond and go to the Rovers for a drink where they serenade each other with “You don’t bring me flowers”.
When John and Fizz arrive at the pub for a pre-Chinese drink, they see Brian and Julie getting on. Brian starts winking at John like he’s having a seizure. John and Fizz decide the best thing to do is break this pair up before anything happens.
“Well, that’s, that’s, I’m not gonna go inta, inta … see, I just need money.”Chesney’s being a right gentleman about doing sex to Katie. He hasn’t blabbed to his mates (save Kirk), gives her a watch that tells time in lots of different countries (including England), and brings her flowers afterward. Unfortunately, he’s intercepted by Owen who throttles him and tells him to take it easy with his baby girl. This does not deter them from doing sex to each other later.
Graeme wants to know why Tina’s so angry with David but she deflects the question and tells him to go live with David if he loves him so.
Tyrone fails to cover up the fact that he and Jack went to a lapdancing club. Eventually Tyrone breaks it to her that Jack is dying and is living out his bucket list. He may not get to London or get to France but by God, he’s gonna see some underpants. All is forgiven and Molly tells Jack he can go to as many lapdancing clubs as he likes. Jack just wants to enjoy every minute he has left. There’ll be time for crying after he’s gone.
